LOL, yeah, kinda. I am using my student loan for that stuff, but think about it. Im going to school to be an auto technician, and getting a car to put an engine in is teaching me right.... LOL so it can be wrote off as an educational expense right..... :wink: LOL all my grants and stuff is paying for tuition and books too, so i got a student loan with hardly any interest just kinda sitting around,,,,,,tell me YOU would'nt spend it..... thats what i thought... LOL

so you found a 3.1 turbo as in one from a grand prix? your gonna need that prom thing or what ever teh acornym is i think that right though for the computer. a custom exhaust and i think you have to relocate the turbo but maybe im just crazy, theres a few other things which i can think of right now, too early

while you have the engine out relocate the coil packs like turbo z they are a bitch!!!!!!!!!!

i also spent my school loans on second car new rims and tires well everything but school :D
